Georgia proved to be pesky on the road against Vanderbilt, pulling to 62-60 late in the second half on a Vincent Williams three-pointer, but the Commodores would hang on to escape with a 77-66 win. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope had a team-high 19 points for the Bulldogs, but Georgia couldn't compete with Vanderbilt on the free throw line (30 of 44 for the Commodores, 16 of 20 for UGA), including hitting seven of eight attempts with a minute remaining in regulation, and rebounding (a 35-27 VU advantage).
Georgia has now lost three in a row, all in conference play, to move to 9-8 (0-3 SEC), while Vandy (13-4, 3-0) remains perfect in conference play. The Bulldogs will return home to Stegman Coliseum to host Tennessee on Wednesday.
